Future urban areas progress

The Development Strategy and the Future Urban Land Supply Strategy provide a strategic approach, indicating when future urban areas will be development ready with live zoning and bulk infrastructure in place.

Highlights in the future urban areas for the 2020/2021 reporting year

  • 2357 dwellings have been consented, which is a 31 per cent increase from the previous reporting year - this is approximately 12 per cent of all dwellings consented.
  • 62 per cent of dwellings consented were houses.

Dwelling typology

The number of standalone houses being consented in the future urban areas in 2020/2021 is down from previous years.

2021 saw 62 per cent  houses consented, which is down from 75 per cent in the previous reporting year. The proportion of townhouses and apartments in the same period increased from 23 per cent to 30 per cent.

Standalone houses are still the predominant type of dwelling in these peripheral locations. The increase in more intensive housing shows preferences in future urban areas are changing.

Supporting infrastructure investment and more transport choices will increase the mix of dwelling types over time.

Dwellings consented in future urban areas, by type, 1 July 2020 – 30 June 2021
